Ping. Sorry for bugging, but I'm trying to get this site ready for a
course. And it would be a pity if students couldn't handle their own

To give some more info: Ideally, I would like to work with a group (the
students). Each student individually would have no particular rights,
but the group would have edit rights on those applications I would like
to provide as examples. They should then be able to duplicate on
example and edit them to their liking, including adding new sources to
layersets and editing those sources.

Just any pointer towards any docs I should read or any possible path to
a solution would already be very helpful.
